Hey guys, ive been trying out this team and its pretty good so far.
Its physical hyper offense, so no magnezone or special attackers.

Here we go;

In short-
Espeon
Haxorus
Dragonite
Salamance
Scizor
Cloyster

In long-

Espeon @ light clay
Magic bounce
Timid
252 HP 4 def 252 spd
Light screen
Reflect
Morning sun
Psyshock

Dual screens. Its only job, so the last two moves are filler.


Haxorus @ lum berry
Mold breaker
Jolly
252 att 4 def 252 spd
Outrage
Earthquake
Taunt
Dragon dance

My main sweeper. I prefer jolly because my team needs speed.
Lum berry is to help with outrage and paralysis or burn.


Dragonite @ lum berry
Multiscale
Adamant
4 HP 252 att 252 spd
Dragon dance
Dragon claw
Fire punch
ExtremeSpeed

Easy to set up because of multiscale. Dragon claw so i can switxh
moves. Lum berry to stop status.


Salamance @ choice scarf
Moxie
Naive
252 att 4 sp att 252 spd
Outrage
Dragon claw
Earthquake
Fire blast

Moxie sweeper and revenge killer.


Scizor @ life orb
Technician
Adamant
4 HP 252 att 252 spd
Sword dance
Bullet punch
Bug bite
Superpower

Great revenge killer and easy to set up. Has a resistance to ice,
so good with all my dragons.


Cloyster @ life orb
Skill link
Naive
252 att 4 sp att 252 spd
Shell smash
Icicle spear
Rock blast
Hydro pump

Just normal Shell Smash Cloyster. Another resistance to ice,
and once set up, can easily sweep.


So there is my team. Please rate, and please remember its
hyper offense.
Cheers

soooo many dragon's :O
change scizors ev spread to 248ho/252atk/8spd makes it easier to absorb those dragon attacks and personally I would use a choice band on him

morning sun is kinda terrible because of all the weather :L your so afraid of status why not give it heal bell instead?

lastly dragonite is a much better dragon dance sweeper than haxorus so I would replace haxorus with something if your opponent sets up on your espeon scarf terrakion would be nice to have

To expand what the above posters said:

Espeon is too defensively weak to use Morning Sun. Instead, use Hidden Power (Fire) to hit Steels or Baton Pass to get out of battle.

I know that your team is inclined on physical offense, but you really, really, really need some form of special offense just so you won't be walled entirely by things like Gliscor, Donphan and Skarmory, If Cloyster goes down, then they wall the freakin' crap out of the team and none of your Dragons would like to get Toxic'd by Gliscor.

And I agree; Dragonite has an easier setting up Dragon Dance than Haxorus because of Multiscale. And like the others said, use Terrakion instead of Haxorus because it helps with the massive Ice weakness you currently have, plus it also has Swords Dance to help you break through walls more easily:
-Swords Dance
-Rock Polish/Substitute
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Air BalloonLife Orb/Rock Gem/Salac Berry

or
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
-X-Scissor
-Quick Attack/Rock Slide/Sacred Sword
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf

or
-Stealth Rock
-Taunt/Swords Dance
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Focus Sash

Choice Scizor is a better fit on the team, as the others said, since you already have tons of setup sweepers:
-U-turn
-Bullet Punch
-Superpower
-Pursuit/Quick Attack
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Technician

Thanks for all the advice guys.

Just note this is hyper offense. Dual screens and 5 set up sweepers.
They are all similar so they have similar counters, such as Skarmory or
Gliscor. The idea is destroy their counters with a few sacrafices, allowing for
the sweep by Dnite or Haxorus.

And i dont need special attack, because with my team opponent special
walls *cough* Blissey *cough* are deadweights.

I thought hyper offense was deoxys-d + 5 sweepers lol
anyway you don't necessarily need a special sweeper but what we were saying was haxorus and dragonite are essential doing the same thing and dragonite is far superior at doing it than haxorus is so why not replace haxorus with a different non-dragon type non dragon dancing sweeper Terrakion,infernape,gyarados(I know),mamoswine(nice for killing gliscor),breloom,weavile,landorus,lucario,conkeldurr even donphan could make a nice sweeper if you wanted him too azumarill/medicham lol
